Description

A magnum bottle of 2001 Grands Échézeaux from the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti.

'This may be blasphemy (even if confirmed by a certain Monsieur De Villaine) but I think this is, the monopole aside, the most expressive wine of the domaine and the best Burgundy of this cru. In a ‘classic’ year, it has the color you would expect from a great Pinot Noir that has bottle-aged properly: an intact red with an orange edge. The ethereal scents recall the Orient and the aromatic profile fluctuates between acute and reflective notes with the citrus appearing and disappearing, while the spice component is always there but changing and the fruit is still crispy and intense. When you taste the wine you understand why this Maison is so important, great and legendary. The mouthfeel is almost meaty, with silky and lively tannins and an unending persistence. 97/100' Daniele Cernilli, DoctorWine

This is magnum number 00094.

Condition

Please see images for fill level and label condition. Note general wear.

The Whisky.Auction team has inspected this lot and found it to be suitable for sale. However, please note the absence of a condition statement does not imply that this lot is in perfect condition or free from wear and tear, imperfections or the effects of ageing. We cannot guarantee that the contents of this bottle will be free from the effects of age, cork taint, oxidation or other faults. Older bottles often contain sediment. Wines are more fragile than spirits and older wines may be listed, at our discretion, for their historical interest rather than their drinkability. We can in no way guarantee that they are still within their plateau of maturity or to the buyer’s taste.

This bottle does not appear to be leaking. While we take every care to pack bottles securely we cannot guarantee that old corks and closures will not leak in transit.
